Checksum errors when installing texlive on 64-bit windows 10 release

Installing to: C:/texlive/2020
Installing [01/64, time/total: ??:??/??:??]: texlive.infra [221k]
TLUtils::check_file: checksums differ for C:\Users\siepo\AppData\Local\Temp\883AoGdWmn\gfcmqHU5pD/texlive.infra.tar.xz:

Error in tempdir() using tlcheckfileXXXXXXXX: Could not create directory tlcheckfileerpZIvJc: Permission denied at D:/texlive/tlpkg/TeXLive/ line 2217.

This happend both on a virtual and on a bare-metal fully-updated windows.

Installing on Ubuntu 18.04 gave no such problems, and neither did installing on windows from my final rsync copy of tlpretest.

Also: Manfred, can you change my email-addres into siepo at ?
